Golden Girl Avalyn
It's the new year and we are now having to pay for many things out of pocket since we haven't met our deductible yet. It's just so stressful. On top of our stress about Ava and everything that is happening to her, we have to worry about money too. We are able to afford things a little bit better now but it's the transplant that I am worried about.
Her transplant will happen over at UCLA, which is about 2 hours away from us. We will be there for a month or possibly longer. There is a hotel nearby that they said it would be best for us to stay there and Drew and I can switch off on nights with Ava during recovery. That will be expensive too. After she is discharged we are supposed to stay close to the hospital as well. Then there is food for us during the hospital stay. Gas for Drew to go back and forth from work to the hospital since he can't take time off work. Then there is the cost of all her medication after being discharged. We have no idea what she will need to take, but we want to be ready for anything. We want to be financially ready and not have to have that added stress.
I want to thank every person who has helped us so far. We are so grateful for every donation. For every prayer. For every kind word. We couldn't do all of this without the help of all our family and friends.
Ava is such a goofy little girl. She makes us laugh so much and is just amazing. She has fought this disease since she was born and we are ready to find her a new and healthy liver. She is doing well. She's happy. She's learning new things. She's starting to talk! I can't wait to see how much more she will learn and what kind of girl she will become.
Thank you for following Avalyn's journey. Please keep sharing her story. Everyone should be aware of not only liver disease but organ donation too! Thank you for donating, and please keep her in your prayers!♻
I’m glad she’s finally coming home! ❤️❤️❤️
